Progress on Sarah

Hello from frigid Wisconsin........it's -3 degrees this morning.  Between 19" of snow in December and now the super cold Canadian temperatures, it's turning out to be a winter for the record books!  Where is global warming when you need it?!?  Of course, the positives are lots of indoor time for stitching and reading. 

I'm making nice progress on Sarah Spurr by Carriage House.  Sarah has been an enjoyable stitching experience.  I love the Needlepoint Silks that I'm using.  I love her dress and the little detail just to the left of the woman.........my camera won't take a good close up of this, but trust me, it's very pretty.  Unfortunately now I'm thinking that I should use more silks than DMC or Anchor floss.  My poor pocketbook!   Here's my progress so far.

I should be working on my challenge piece for Nicola's Scarlet Letter Challenge, but haven't started it.  Lots of gorgeous sampler posts taking place on the first and second blogs.  Check it out.

I did make a tiny start to my Ann Bowers Sampler.  It's a stitch along with the Attic in Arizona.  I'm already behind on this one....but that's no surprise.


  1. Beautiful stitching on Sarah, Jane!! I have always loved that design, I think it is the checkerboard floor that I find so striking. Stay warm. These frigid temps are crazy and we are getting them tomorrow in CT. Brrrr!

  2. Sarah looks so lovely! I love Ann Bowers too and am afraid I will regret not joining in on that one.

  3. Beautiful work on Sarah. Very lovely indeed.

  4. LOL, you aren't as behind as me and Jen ;-)!!!!! I am thinking next month I will get caught up and then I am going to just stitch what is called for each month??? Love, love, love Sarah, I have her kitted too!!!!!!!! Stay warm and stitch ;-).
